  • A beautiful mosque neglected by local authorities from preserving and cleaning point of view but still it’s a amazing place to visit to see the Mughal empire’s architecture and interest in serving their communities. There is no entry fee. To avoid rush , best to visit in early morning hours. For female covering head is recommended since you are visiting the mosque.
